A New Series Presenting an Inside Look at Works in Progress 

Watch how Dances become Dances …

The new Kanopy LabWorks series was conceived to provide our audience an insider look at the underlying processes involved in making a dance and a special opportunity to connect with our renowned guest artists ,creative directors, Company dancers and our talented tech crew in a “working studio” setting. 

Kanopy LabWorks provide a rare sneak preview into the art of producing our mainstage season that is performed at the Overture Center for the Arts.

Admission is free, though donations to support important educational and outreach programs like this are always welcome. Reservations are limited and registration is required.

All Kanopy LabWorks sessions will be held at our studio, the Kanopy Center for Modern and Contemporary Dance, 329 W. Mifflin Street, (around the corner from the Overture Center for the Arts. Brief Q& A’s follow the demonstrations.    

The Kanopy LabWorks series was launched on Sunday, July 9,2023 with an informal showing by renowned world class dancer and choreographer, Tadej Brdnik (Brdnik) a former soloist and principal dancer for the Martha Graham Dance Company. Brdnik workshopped two world premieres with the Kanopy Dance Company, as an artist in residence that will premiere this fall in Kanopy’s Shades of Light this fall at the Overture Center for the Arts, October 20-22, 2023.
